6:14am
>> stephanie: all right. let's dive into the right-wing world. i loved -- they agree with hilary, there is a vast right wing conspiracy but apparently it is to keep her president. hannity said it was staged. >> that's right. and when right-wingers see human emotion, they are perplexed. >> stephanie: exactly. sean hannity. >> what you saw in this answer this anger this outrage, i can tell you was not spontaneous. i'm telling you, it was staged under probably the direction of the raging cagen james carvel himself or somebody else. they knew this was coming. and this was their strategy. what difference does it make? does it really matter? of course it matters to people that want the truth.
6:15am
>> you idiot. >> stephanie: wow. >> just to show you how little the right-wing has changed. they still have got clinton derangement syndrome from the '90s. >> stephanie: yeah. this was -- we'll play i'm sure we have it. but it was ron johnson the republican of wisconsin asked her why she didn't make a simple phone call to the oh vak youees. she said with all due respect we had four americans dead what difference did it make? >> she said she wanted the fbi to have time to do their job, and what difference does it make whether they knew exactly what it was right away. >> stephanie: right. >> and they are still trying to figure out out like we all are. >> stephanie: but in the heat of a tragedy, and she has just been

told her friend and ambassador had been killed, she is going to go wait a minute, was there a video? >> it shows their fixation on unimportant details. we're getting more and more information, and you know -- >> stephanie: yeah. >> this is what happens when you see republicans spoiling for a fight when there is nothing to fight over. >> what is to fight over is who cut funding for embassy security. >> exactly. where the hell do they get off complaining about this at all? >> stephanie: thank you. and john mccain was just shaking his fist and i'm glad to see -- oh i'm just fighting with myself! >> well he can be slightly forgiven he had to endure another inauguration from the man who beat him. i was not sitting too far from
6:17am
the president during the inauguration and he was sitting next to orrin hatch, and he was wearing an orange shirt, and mccain was wearing only aviator glasses. >> stephanie: all right. rush limbaugh. >> it was like a pukefest. it was right out of banana republic. i have never seen gravelling sucking up, butt kissing, hillary clinton's testimony. and she lost her cool at one point. by the way she opened up crying, which is part of the script. >> stephanie: human. oh it's scripted. >> yes. >> it's part of the clinton script. >> don't you guys know anything
6:18am
yet? part of the skriment was her illness and concussion and when that got proved wrong, it had to be her emotions are part of the script. >> stephanie: karl you are good when you can fake a blood clot you are a very accomplishes actress, apparently. >> this is just vintage limbaugh and what they think of the clintons, and we have got to get used to it. because when hilary is going to run to be our next president, this is what we're going to see day in and day out. >> stephanie: yeah. interesting just as she is leaving and any speculation is starting with 2016 of course that's what it is all about. >> republicans are baffled by genuine emotion. she is crying because a friend of her's is killed. >> all rush has to think about is what it was like when they took his pain medication away.
6:19am
>> stephanie: that's right. kids do you know the pictures we have >> oh. >> stephanie: just from the inauguration, right? >> right. >> stephanie: my mom is like oh dear are you hugs the vice president, how did the secret service allow that? i'm like i don't know. i think they make an exception for the girls. >> and newt gingrich. >> stephanie: right. and who wants to lose that. easily recover all of the files, boom they are back from the cloud. so affordable just $59 a year and since everything is up there in the cloud, you can access them from anywhere. >> and that is a cloud that even john mccain wouldn't yell at. >> stephanie: right. give me my files back!

6:25am
>> stephanie: yeah. four years ago when the republicans sat in a room on the night of barack obama inauguration, planning on how to destroy his presidency. >> stephanie: yes. >> and anybody thought they were taking a break from that plan -- >> stephanie: don't you love that mcconnell said the inauguration speech was -- a lot of liberalism. to a country we still believe is center right. oh, okay. you continue to believe whatever you want to believe -- >> and romney is going to win in november. i don't know who their pollster is, but they need to hire a new one. and 95% of it was perfectly main stream. this country is center left, and the sooner the republican party gets wise to it, the better for them. >> stephanie: yes, and on each and every issue, americans agree with him, so if that is center
6:26am
right -- >> the right-wing anti-gays came out with tweets saying gay people have all of the rights that everybody else has. that's how delusional they are. >> stephanie: right. here is bill o'reilly. >> not one democrat asks mrs. clinton a tough question. come on, that's appalling. mrs. clinton doesn't really have to worry much about libya. it's clear americans are not holding her accountable. 59% of americans approve of secretary clinton's performance, just 29% disapprove. so clearly the folks think she has been effective running the state department. >> because she has. >> stephanie: right. >> moron. >> stephanie: since she stands by the findings -- >> nearly 60% of the country believes in gravity. >> this is the scandal that just wouldn't for them.
6:27am
to borrow a phrase from political eons before there is no there there. if you want to know one of the reasons that so many countries around the world now view america in a positive light, it is because of this president and the secretary of state. >> stephanie: absolutely. here is the fox pop psychologist, dr. keith ablow. >> i think it's a-blow. >> stephanie: oh, yes. >> the solution runs psychologically in the direction of disempowering individual every single time. the autonomy of others did him no favors when he was abandoned again and again by people who were, quote unquote, responsible and supposed to do the right thing like his parents. what good did the autonomy do
6:28am
me? the reason the president gravitates towards taking guns and not restoring the mental health care system is because those two things are diametrically opposed. >> blah, blah, blah. >> i read somewhere that he is considering running for office. >> that massachusetts. >> stephanie: i love to see him debate somebody that is all pop psychologist. you are just saying that because of your daddy issues aren't you. >> i could collect a fortune just talking him through his problems if he laid down on the couch. this is a perfect example of what a fox news sellout is. somebody who goes on and parrots whatever they think the fox news audience wants. >> stephanie: oh, by the way, brian kilmeade. >> you don't believe in the 98%
6:29am
of the climateologist -- >> you mean the corrupt ones? >> 98% of -- >> how do they make their living climateologist? everyone in their industry has to be addressed. for anyone to think it is settled science is a huge leap. >> if a scientist is looking to make money, being a climate scientist, there is a lot better money -- >> exactly. >> stephanie: karl frisch you are delightful on the phone and in person. and i miss you already. >> i miss you too. >> stephanie: give dexter a kiss and cut an extra coat on. twenty-nine minutes after the hour, representative john yarmuth next on the "stephanie miller show."

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: yeah. it is the "stephanie miller show." welcome to it. thirty-four minutes after the hour. 1-800-steph-1-2 the phone number toll free from anywhere. you know what of all of the congress critters we go to mingle with in washington, d.c. one of our favorite john yarmuth, where were you? >> where was i? >> he was probably busy. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caught in traffic.
6:35am
>> we're never really busy. this is another one of those crazy weeks where we worked essentially a day and a half and we're back in our districts now. >> stephanie: yeah. yeah. yeah. we were laughing because we saw congressman grayson, and he is like i can't stay out late because i have a hilary hearing in the morning. and i'm like whatever name dropper. but as i expected she did great. i think this was the story line that they were going to get her. house republicans were going to get hilary. and you better come loaded for bare, right? >> exactly. i have seen this so many times that members of congress take on somebody thinking they know more than they do. the reason they are there as witnesses almost by definition have more knowledge than the members do. >> stephanie: yeah they were
6:36am
going to use her to build some sort of scandal they have been building since 2008 instead they are left with nothing but empty conspiracy theories. limbaugh claimed that they were in on a conspiracy because it is part of getting hilary elected in 2016. >> my god. i people to recall something called on impeachment proceeding. >> stephanie: yeah. i guess they were part of the conspiracy of her being really smart and prepared and a great secretary of state. >> yeah rand paul just said he would have fired her. >> stephanie: we needed a good punch line, and the if i were president was it. >> i'm glad you are accepting responsibility. i think you accept the
6:37am
culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11. had i been president at the time, and i found you did not read the cables from benghazi and ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you from your post. >> stephanie: wow. he is taking that as an admission of culpability. >> certainly it was a tragedy, benghazi was a tragedy but when you put her up there with 9/11 and sandy hook, and aurora and dozens of others that is just hyperbole, and that's what he is known for. i like rand but he just gets a little whacky sometimes. >> stephanie: yeah a little
6:38am
whack-a doodle. john mccain said that chris stevens spoke to him directly about needing more security. did he do something? pass on the information? or keep it to himself? did he bring the information to the state department? that was an odd moment. right? excuse me you are the head of the armed services committee. >> of course. and she raised that point in a very productive way. so clearly this was not anything that was on any member's radar screen to appoint d which they actually took action in any way. >> stephanie: right. >> so the whole scenario is just an embarrassment, i think. and fortunately i think hilary embarrassed them even more yesterday. >> stephanie: yeah absolutely. i was hoping she would open with
6:39am
i got your freakin' benghazi flu right here. but she is classier than i am. >> yeah. this to me was one of the more cowardly moves that republicans have made and the list is growing on a daily basis. if they really wanted to accomplish something -- first of all they would have said that the pay -- the pay embargo would have been in effect unless there was a budget agreement adopted by both houses which would have forced them to compromise, now the house can pass any budget it wants, regardless of how extreme it is which is what they are going to do so they get off of the hook and throw it in the senate's lap. it puts no pressure on the house republicans to be -- to
6:40am
compromise to the slightest extent and all they did was kick the debt ceiling down the road three months. >> stephanie: yeah, and boehner called his own bluff he said never going to raise it without equal pay cut, and basically he went back on that, and as you said, all he did was kick it down the road for three months. what was the point for him? >> the point was to look like they had some kind of a win because they knew they were in trouble on the debt ceiling, and then put the pressure on somebody else, namely the senate. but they are going to put forth a budget pretty soon that is really going to be an important % contrast for the american people to see. they are going to try to balance the budget in ten years, which you cannot do without slashing
6:41am
medicare and medicaid, and social security. so the american people will get, i think, a very good look at the way republicans want to balance the budget and do deficit reduction and the way democrats do. we actually went through this with paul ryan's budget which was so egregious the leader of his party had to back away from it in the campaign. >> stephanie: yeah, it was seen as sort of a slap at the senate but they are calling it the no budget, no pay idea. it has been regarded by a lot of people as a gimmick. here they go. it's a new way to play some sort of partisan games right? >> exactly. and it doesn't guarantee that there will be a compromised budget agreement between the house and senate. they can pass one, just as the house can pass one.
6:42am
and that's why it made no sense. they tried to play gotcha with democratic members, because no matter how bad the legislation was, the no budget, no pay is a fairly pop idea. >> stephanie: i'm reading a story about it, i mean most adults would prefer a long-term solution. i know you are, but what am i? >> yeah. keith elson said to the caucus yesterday, we swear an oath to protect the constitution and to do our job. the idea that we have to basically blackmail ourselves into doing our job is so insulting. >> stephanie: yeah.
6:43am
boehner said we're not going to raise taxes on the american people, blah, blah blah. here we go again. i saw an interesting thing in the "new york times" yesterday. this is not enough revenue to -- you know -- the president what we got in the last fiscal cliff, right? >> yeah, $700 billion over ten years. >> stephanie: but the point is and we can say it over and over people do not want the safety nets cut. this -- this piece said citizens of other advanced nations appear to agree it is worth the price. americans have been more hostile toward taxation than other countries. there's pew poll almost two to one it was more important to avoid cuts in social security payments, and this for everybody. 74% of american oppose shorter
6:44am
days or more crowded classrooms. clearly americans value government services. we may welcome an opportunity to save them. what do you think about all of that? >> i think it's very accurate. the american people basically want to do everything -- they want to eat everything drink everything they want to drink, smoke everything they want to smoke, and then get perfect health care and not pay for it. that's human nature but what it indicates very clearly is the american people truly value these social safety net programs. they think they are an important government priority and they don't want them changed in any dramatic way and that's what the president said that was so important, he talked about what people's expectations of the federal government are and that's a discussion we need to have. not how much can we cut and
6:45am
spend, it's what do we want the government to do and then figure out how to get it done. i hope we do that as we go through these next three crisises. >> stephanie: that's how we screwed up california, do everyone want free unicorns? yes, do you want to pay more on your water bill? no. congressman thank you so much. >> i'm sorry i missed you in dc. >> stephanie: i'll see you for hilaries inauguration. there we goes john yarmuth. we'll be right back on the "stephanie miller show." >> announcer: there's something funny going on in talk radio. it's the "stephanie miller show." instead of corn, you've got dope. (vo) but what is legal and what is criminal? >> this is, no matter what you do, a violation of federal law. (vo) follow real farmers staking
6:46am
their claim on a new frontier. >> lots of terrible things happen to people growing marijuana. >> this crop to me is my livelihood. >> i have everything invested in this. only on current tv.
6:47am
desmond tutu said a quote that is one of my favorite quotes. "we are tied together in a web of humanity. i am a person only through you. i can only be a person only through you." that really resonates me and drives my work. the world is becoming an incredibly connected place. mobile phones are really driving that connection. at kiva, we run an internet marketplace. people can lend to other people for the purpose of starting a
6:48am
or a variety of other good causes. you can go to kiva.org and you can see pictures and profiles of people from over sixty countries all across the world. you can lend them as little as $25. if they are successful, they will pay you back. dear rixi, you're a honduran immagrant. you're coming to the us, you have an idea to start, you know, a women's cosmetics store or a clothing store. you're going to need a lot of things, ya know, to pay the rent, permits inventory, advertising, marketing so that adds up quite a bit. you're going to need tens of thousands of dollars to start a small busines. there is ten million-plus people completely left out of the formal finical system. banks don't lend to people like that at all. there is a lot of opportunity to decrease unemployment, provide employment, provide economic
6:49am
opportunity and raise our standard of living by investing in small business. our hearts are an incredibly powerful thing. good technology can help amplify this power and create an incredibly powerful force that can spread to every country in the world. these talking points, that the right have, about the "heavy hand of government" ... i want to have that conversation. really? you know i'd like to arm our viewers with the ability to argue with their conservative uncle joe over the dinner table. ♪
